“The moon was up, painting the world silver, making things look just a little more alive.” N.D. Wilson

To The Moon

I found myself by a water darkly as moon wandered by and awakened my my soul with loves so ablaze with spring’s life as to raise the dead so long moribund of colour and light, and at once now alive. I sat for a while in night’s shadow as moon loved me, igniting my gladsome heart afresh with a thousand, thousand moments of radiant delight as a lake of fertile lotus. I stayed long in the hope that desire would kindle once more.

Transcending moon shines
while night heron wades
plenty of fish here.
